The crystal structure of several compositions in the system $La_{0.6}Pb_{0.4}Mn_{1-y}Ti_yO_3 (0 \leq y \leq 0.4)$ have been investigated by powder X-ray diffraction using the Rietveld refinement technique. The solid solutions of compositions Y = 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3 crystallize in the rhombohedral structure (space group $R\bar{3}c$), while for the composition corresponding to Y = 0.4, the crystal structure transforms from rhombohedral to orthorhombic system (space group Imma). Profile refinements on all these compositions reveal that the $MnO_6$ octahedra are distorted and rotated from their ideal positions. The doping at the B-site results in the formation of the orthorhombic phase Imma at room temperature. The structural implications on the magnetic properties also correlate with previous observations.
